Fifty Shades of Grey Dream Cast
I am going to play casting director and post my picks for who I think should play the characters in the soon to be made film adaptation of the book Fifty Shades of Grey. The list is ongoing and subject to change.
Christian Grey: Alex Pettyfer
Why? He's the hottest young actor out there right now. He has Christian's chiseled, gorgeous face, his lean, muscular bod, his generous height, and his messy hair. Plus he is fairly new on the scene and would be able to devote a few years to the series—unlike a megastar like Ryan Gosling, who otherwise would have been my choice to play Fifty. (If by some miracle Gosling is cast as Christian Grey, my list will need to be revised.) I think with the right effort and attitude (Pettyfer has a diva rep, but, Christian is a bit of a diva himself.) he could pull off Mr. Grey's American accent and mercurial disposition. Pettyfer can currently be seen in the 2012 film Magic Mike.
Anastasia Steele: Lily Collins
Why? She's young, beautiful and can act. Also, she can pull off innocence as well as feistiness. She recently played Snow White in the 2012 film Mirror Mirror.
Mrs. Robinson (Elena Lincoln): Cara Buono
Why? She has the looks of Elena and the acting chops to play this villainous vixen. You may remember her as Dr. Faye Miller from Mad Men.
Kate Kavanagh: Shailene Woodley
Why? Kate is a strong character, thus, a strong actress is needed to fill her shoes. Plus she has Kate's long, beautiful hair and lovely face. You may recall having seen her as Alexandra in The Descendents (2011).
Jose Rodriguez: Diego Boneta
Why? He's not only a hottie, but he is adorable and likable as well—just like Jose. Boneta can currently be seen in the 2012 film Rock of Ages.
Jack Hyde: Samuel Page
Why? He is charming and good looking but also plays evil so well. You may remember him from Desperate Housewives and Mad Men.
Leila: Emily Browning
Why? She has that ethereal thing down pat. Not convinced? Check her out in Sleeping Beauty (2011).
Mia Grey: Ronan Saoirse
Why? She is cute and engaging and is a fine young actress. You may have seen her in Atonement (2007) and Hanna (2011).
Jason Taylor: Channing Tatum
Why? He has the bodyguard bod and rugged good looks of Jason's. Plus he is a charming and talented actor. You can see him strut his stuff in Magic Mike (2012).
Ethan Kavanagh: Chace Crawford
Why? He has Ethan's good looks, charm, and playful personality. Plus the gurrrls love him! You can see him in the television show Gossip Girl.
I can only post up to ten images per entry, so I have provided links to images for the remaining cast picks.
Elliot Grey: Armie Hammer
Why? He's handsome, charming, and a great actor. Plus he can be playful just like Elliot. You may have seen him in Mirror Mirror (2012) and The Social Network (2010).
Carrick Grey: Christian Bale
Why? Why not?! Yes he is a little young to play Christian's father. But Bale is a chameleon. With a little help from the makeup department, he would be perfect. Plus, being that Fifty Shades is a BDSM themed story, a cameo from American Psycho's Bale would be a real treat. I know that his megastar status might keep him from accepting a low paying, supportive role, but here's hoping. You have probably seen him in several films, including Batman Begins (2005.)
Dr. Flynn: Bret Easton Ellis
Why? OK, so he is not an actor. He is, however, obsessed with the Fifty Shades series and has been campaigning on the Internet to get the rights to pen the screenplay for the first film. As the author of American Psycho, he has shown that he is knowledgeable regarding the subject matter. So if he doesn't get to write the screenplay, allowing him to be in the film seems like a cool thing to do. I'm sure an acting coach could do wonders for Ellis.
Dr. Grace Trevelyn-Grey: Tilda Swinton
Why? Did you see the 2011 film We Need to Talk About Kevin? Was she the ultimate mother to a damaged child, or what? Plus she is a brilliant actress and could pull off any role, I'm certain.
Gail Jones: Christina Hendricks
Why? She can play nurturing and sexy equally. Remember, Gail is the love interest of Jason Taylor, so the actress playing this role needs to be attractive. Christina is that! You can see her in Mad Men.
Mr. Rodriguez: Antonio Banderas
Why? He would be great as the elder Rodriguez. He is handsome, charming, and can act. Did you see him in the 2011 film The Skin I live in?
Carla May Wilks (Ana's Mother): Diane Lane
Why? She is a likable, versatile, and seasoned actress. She can be seen in Under the Tuscan Sun (2003) and the upcoming film Man of Steel (2013). (Mom of Steele, haha.)
Raymond Steele: John Cusack
Why? Oh, wouldn't you love to see him onscreen again in a lovable role? Remember him in Say Anything (1989)?
